Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

MAN OPENING GIFT

Valentine’s Day is coming up (how did that happen!?) and it’s time for us to start figuring out what to buy our other halves, but also making sure their gifts don’t seem half-arsed or impersonal. So, I scoured the net and found some Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas that are special enough for that special man in your life.

A personalised wallet

Personalised Dark Brown Barbour Wallet with Coin Holder from Farrar & Tanner

My husband walked around with a tattered wallet for years before I decided he needed to say goodbye to it forever. So, I went on the hunt for a decent wallet that would house his cards, notes and coins. I thought it would take me minutes, but it turned out to be a selection headache, due to the sheer volume of wallets available online. So, I decided to find a personalised service and stumbled upon an online company called Farrar & Tanner, which offers an impressive selection of high-quality personalised wallets. I decided on the Personalised Dark Brown Barbour Wallet with Coin Holder, which looks so smart and ticks all the boxes. It also came in a gift box, so you just need to wrap and go.

Boots are made for walking

Your man is up and about all the time, so buying him a nice pair of boots made for walking to work, dropping the kids to school/activities and going on great dates (with you of course) would seem the ideal and practical choice for Valentine’s Day. Jacamo have a great selection of boots made just for walking and that’s just what they’ll do!

Personalised canvas documenting your love

Canvas prints are a great way to not only personalise your family home but to document your love for all to see! Parrot Print offers a range of personalised canvases which promise to bring your images to life. The canvas above is a 40 x 30″ landscape personalised canvas which costs around £40.00 and is fully customisable. You can pick from a variety of different sizes online, either square, portrait or landscape and you can also choose how to wrap the image around the canvas, either using the image wrap option or with a white or black border. Parrot Print offer free delivery for orders over £20 and if you order before 12 pm you can benefit from next day delivery – perfect for those last-minute Valentine’s Day offers!

Give him the gift of experience that you both can enjoy

How many dates have you been on together without the kids? A lot? Not enough? None at all? Then why don’t you double up your Valentine’s gift and buy an experience that both of you can enjoy together? Great ideas include a Wine Tasting Break for Two, a MAC Photoshoot for Two, so you can immortalise your experience, or a Log Cabin Break for Two. It’s much needed time for you two to rekindle that flame, especially when the kids have taken up so much of your time, and let your hair down for once!

Personalised Photo Book of your journey together

A love story that is immortalised and documented in a beautiful personalised photo book is one of the best personalised Valentine’s Day gifts in my opinion – for so many reasons! All those wonderful photos that you took when you first met or when you got married, or even when you had your first child can all be placed together in one book, decorated however you like. Colorland.com have a very impressive array of personalised gifts, especially photo books, and you can choose between a Classic photo book, an Exclusive style photo book (see the images above and below), and a Luxury Photobook, each with over 150 different designs, so you can personalise to your heart’s content. And, the quality is very impressive. The photo books are sturdy and with photos that literally pop onto the page (see the image below). You have free reign to place the images however you want in the photobooks’ pre-designed templates and Colorland’s online website tool makes it really simple to professionally decorate the photo book without the need of a designer.

Personalised calendar

We’re only in the 2nd month of 2019, so giving your other half a personalised wall calendar, decorated with personalised photos would be a great touch for their office or on the kitchen wall. Make sure to mark all the important dates on their calendar like your birthday, so they don’t have any excuse to forget! The above Photo Calendar in the image is in XL format, which is huge, but if you wanted to opt for something smaller you could go for either an A3 format or an A4 format. You can find a range of pre-template photo calendars on Colorland.com’s site.

Personalised mugs are also a great way to show your love through their favourite beverages! Whenever your loved one needs a quick pick-me-up, they can enjoy their favourite drink while reminiscing about the wonderful memories through personalised mugs. You can pick from a Coloured Mug, Magic Mug (where your personalised pictures show up when hot liquid is poured into the mug) and a Latte Mug, which you can see in the image above. Pick from a whole range of different templates and don’t just send them to your other half. Share the wealth with everyone in the family – it’s a great keepsake for the cupboard which can be brought out time and time again

Keep your man looking trim

Keep your man trim and looking good with a shaving /grooming kit. My husband spends ages working on his beard and he shaves his head every other day. So, the Braun Series 7 Electric Shaver with Travel Case would be the perfect gift for him, as he’ll make full use of it.

A day without the kids

Couple strolling down the hill

You don’t have to always buy gifts on Valentine’s Day. Ship the kids off to the grandparents or hire a babysitter and take the day together. You could stroll along the park, go to the cinema, enjoy a nice meal together or even stay indoors by yourselves and just be together. The point is to claw back that time that made you a couple before kids came along and dashed your chance of any together time.

Whatever your choice, make sure it comes from the heart and I’m sure he’ll love it.

Good luck!
